Fairy invasion at House of Dun

There’s something magical going on at the National Trust for Scotland’s House of Dun near Montrose during weekends in November, as a fairy hunt gets underway for families.

Eagle-eyed younger visitors are being invited to help the team track down some fairies which seem to have got loose in the grounds of the stunning A listed Georgian country house. Apparently, the fairies came to the house to be sold in the shop, but they quickly took flight and hid themselves all round the property.

Property manager John McKenna said: “The fairies obviously love it at House of Dun. They can feel that there is a touch of magic in the air.

“We need our younger visitors to help us keep track of the fairies and make sure that they don’t fly off into too much mischief.”

The fairy hunt takes place every Saturday and Sunday in November from 12 noon until 4 p.m. – pick up your first clue from the shop for only £2 per child.

To keep mums and dads amused, the shop will be open every weekend throughout November, with a selection of excellent festive gifts, decorations and cards to choose from.
